Yesterday Vivica A. Fox stopped by Access Hollywood and dished about her failed engagement to 27-year-old boo, Slimm.
During the interview, Viv said that she got a little too caught up in Slimm’s looks, but just couldn’t overlook all of his flaws. She says she had the courage to break the engagement before they got married and wasted a whole bunch of money. Kudos Viv!
She explained, “Sometimes in relationships there are warning signs (I’ve been married before) and if there are warning signs you should pay attention to them before you get families involved, all the hoopla and things like that. If things aren’t working out, it’s okay to move on.”
When Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush asked Fox what type of men she likes, Viv admitted to falling for the pretty boys, but she’s looking to switch it up.
“To be honest with you, I don’t know. I told myself I’m going to try something different next time ‘cause I happen to fall in love with a six pack and a smile and look what that’s gotten me.”

Although Vivica was speaking about her own personal experience, I’m sure many of us can relate to being caught by a person’s physical appearance and giving them a bit of a pass on things that aren’t quite right. In the end however, like Vivica, we (hopefully) learned that the outside isn’t always an indication of what’s happening on the inside. And having a partner whose heart, personality, and values match ours is far more important than a pretty face or ripped abs.
Have you ever fallen for a six-pack and a smile?
